Happy faces.

The students of the adult education centre finished their Spanish language course at Hirvivuori Manor by cooking some paella in 2008.
Proper clothing highlighted the Spanish-styled evening.
The spacious living room is perfect for lectures and training sessions.
You can also arrange memorable parties and other special events in our traditional living room.
The long tables can be easily rearranged for anniversary dinners or birthday and wedding receptions.
The magnificient view from the top of the Hirvivuori is as Finnish as it gets - vast forests with glimmering lakes.
The nature is surrounding the Hirvivuori Manor: if you're lucky you can see a moose feeding in the field right in front of our windows.
Rabbits are also frequent guests on our fields.
The male black grouses have entertained us with their courtship dances for at least 30 years now.
You can rent a small boat with an outboard motor from us and go for example fishing on the lake Muuratjärvi near by.

The trees turn into wonderful warm tones of red, orange and yellow in the Autumn.

On the Hirvivuori estate there are also some mysterious ruins of primitive dwellings where both people and animals lived together in the 17th - 18th centuries.

Neste Oil Rally 2006 (WRC)
Hirvivuori Manor accommodated WRC driver GIGI GALLI with his co-driver JOHN BERNACCHINI and the BSA Team during the Neste Oil Rally. Gigi and John drove successfully and got the 5th place in the rally. Congratulations to Gigi and the team, and let's hope that next year he'll top the record for the longest jump of the rally that at the moment is 55,5 meters.

Neste Rally Finland 05(WRC)

You can easily access one of Central Finland's biggest summer events, Neste Rally Finland, from Hirvivuori.  Our manor is only 3 km from the route of Vellipohja special stage (33,3 km). We rent parking space for caravans and RVs and we also provide good landing area for helicopters. 

Hirvivuori co-operates with Jyväskylään Ltd, an official partner of Neste Rally Finland. 

See larger picture... 2005 we had a special Neste Rally guest staying at Hirvivuori: Fabrizio de Sanctis with his wife Yvonne, his co-driver Juri Rosignoli and his car technicians. Fabrizio's car was numbered 84 and he had decorated it with a relevant message as seen in the picture; this year's rally in Jyväskylä is no less than the 20th that Fabrizio has participated in. At the same time he and his wife were enjoying the peaceful countryside and the Finnish nature, which he appreciates greatly. We at Hirvivuori thank him and his crew for choosing our services and wish them good luck in the rally.
